"Getting Testy" is the third episode of Muppets Now.

Official description

Joe, the new legal counsel for The Muppets, interrupts the scheduled delivery of Muppets Now to announce that all streaming content must be vetted by a focus group. Things go from bad to worse when Scooter meets up with the assigned test audience – curmudgeonly critics Statler and Waldorf.

The Swedish Chef collaborates with Chef Roy Choi as the two try to make a one-of-kind kalbi bowl. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant, Beaker, enlist a Pizza Delivery Person (Al Madrigal) to explore velocity. Miss Piggy and her guests, Linda Cardellini and Taye Diggs, dig deep into the workings of a healthy relationship. Pepe the King Prawn’s unbelievable game show features new contestants, new challenges, new rules, and no planning at all.

  • While Pepe makes up his own game show's rules as he goes anyway, contestant Daniel erroneously guesses the spelling of the word "ukulele" as "U-K-E-L-E-L-E," and gets rewarded a point for his incorrect answer. However, this is sometimes considered an alternate spelling.
